Hear what people are saying!
“A fresh and refreshing album of great songs arranged perfectly and played to the highest standard for our listening pleasure.” – Uber Rock
“‘Losing The Frequency’, a high octane homage to the old days of AM radio. Expect huge hooky choruses and summer vibes with the piano out there, front and centre.” – Real Gone Rocks
Pumped that I just sent off my new record to the critically acclaimed Wyatt Funderburk to mix! Soon I’ll make another announcement about who’s putting it out, where you can pick it up and all that. Thanks to all that came out to our show with Smash Mouth, too! We’ll see you cats in October when we take the road again! Also, Spain, we’re coming back for you in 2017!
Happy New Year to all you rock n’ rollers out there! And everyone else too, I guess. 2016 is going to be a great year for rock n’ roll and I hope to see you all at some point before 2017! I’ve got a lot in the works with a new album, new EP to follow, heading back to Spain, jamming with friends, and much more!
This month I’ll be heading out west to sit in with fellow garage rock n’ rollers Soraia, at Echoplex in L.A. for the The Muff’s 25th Anniversary show!

It’s a Little Steven’s Underground Garage show, as well as being hosted by Mighty Manfred of The Woggles, and a great UG DJ in his own right. I’ve got more news for this April, but first let’s get pumped for L.A.!
